First year, from seed: These have been exceptionally cold-hardy (under a few inches of snow, one fall blossom actually remained open and intact through the entire winter with nights in the teens; 2 other half-hardy violas didn't survive at all). With the spring thaw, the plant began growing and blooming steadily. The flowers are an intense true blue when they receive sun, more of a dusky blue otherwise. Unusual coloring, sizeable blooms, and don't seem to be as susceptible to slugs like other pansies I've tried.
